Why is the Tracing hated so hard.
"copying by eye" or "using somebody else Copyrighted content" isnt.
at the end all of this are "steaing from somebody else art and creativity"

It's a crutch and it comes with its set of challenges to overcome.
Taking picrel as an example for Kyle who's a faggot well known for tracing over 3d models. Observe how the right foot ankle is squished because the doll software can't accurately represent the movement of the feet. The character is very detached from the background and her face isn't properly incorporated on the 3d model. Rendering is uneven because elements such as clothes are rendered less accurately than the character's skin that is precisely shaded with the 3d software lighting as reference.
Point is, you can't take shortcuts for everything. If your skills fail to keep up then your trace will look flawed to the trained eye. However if you aim to appeal to the lowest common denominator with shit like patreon coom art and have no standards when it comes to what you create then by all means, go for it.
I just dont like it personally because whats the point of tracing something and showing it as your work when you cant reliably replicate it on your own
like if you want to show this dude from another angle trace anon is shit out of luck while draw anon can just construct him again
It is not not the same as the many other forms of "copying". There is no transformation, it is purely reproduction.
Even if other forms of art (like Dada and Pop-art) copy other existing works, its is often to serve as commentary. Not only that, those works literally copy and paste or alter other works, they don't trace.
Most often those who trace commit plagiarism to get attention, sell a better product, or both. They are artistically bankrupt.
1. requires no skill, worthless to the craft
2. requires no creativity, worthless to the arts

Stop trying to justify being a hack fraud, you drooling neanderthal.
Only really an issue assuming at some point you’re not going to have the tools to do it, which is never gonna happen. There’s reasons to dislike tracing but this is a stupid one. It’s like everyone drawing with shit on a wall and someone invents the pencil. Everyone has pencils and then you being like “what’s the point of you can’t reliably draw it with shit on a wall tho?”

I’ve seen a lot of them IRL and some professionals online. If you like drawing, you are probably creative. That means you could enjoy writing, sculpting, making music or videos, etc. Those people simply enjoyed other creative pursuits more and didn't seem to miss drawing much. That’s why you should try everything and figure out what you’re good at and really enjoy.
if i ever quit im not coming back, i would not be able cope with the fact that all i couldve used all that time improving

You are saving yourself the hazzle of being an artist in the future in a world where there are many surplus artists.
You won't earn nothing with this drawing nonsense, and bare with me, if there is something you wanted to create, there is a high chance it was invented or is in development.
So yeah, do it for your own sake and be a chef, electrician, idk (probably not since these things are also hard)

Idk, rope maybe?

The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making and Manga-style illustration.

Support each other and talk about your work or the work of others that excites you. Inking, character design, paneling / layout, writing, planning, and other discussions are all welcome.

Post resources, questions, in-progress pages, breakdowns of other works, etc. If a work is not yours, credit the maker (unless it's fucking obvious like a full page of One Piece or something).

Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

Well it makes sense, if you're going to write for an audience you have to know your audience.

And you also have to be very skilled, and likely willing to relocate.
how much more time does coloring add to the manga making process?

I want to avoid it if possible, because atm its taking me like 4 hours to color one page and I'm sure I'm not doing it right, but if I were to practice and learn the proper workflow how long would it take? Especially for detailed pages with backgrounds

what is wrong with you
You're an animal
Anon I bought a full pack of primo 3B charcoal when i started about 2 years ago. I whittled through about 5 after they kept breaking and breaking until i realized you have to replace the razor blade or use a well sharpened pocketknife
I don't know if Conte started using particle board for their pencils but this shit sucks.

>Does Pixel Art really deserve to be its own art form? Isn't it just, due to the technical constraints for the time, a less sophisticated form of digital art?
no, i'd argue the constrained palette and low resolution of the workspace brings a sort of pixel-space efficiency that is completely unique to pixel art. adding just a single pixel can massively change the way your brain perceives a subject, something you'd need several strokes to do for less restrained art forms. incidentally, that's also how i personally distinguish between pixel art and binary/oekaki art. most of the stuff you've posted here isn't really pixel art.

not contemporary money laundering shit: check
requires FUNDIES: check yes check
No fart sniffing stupid "muh style" shit like cubism and Picasso in general: check
has kino painters that weren't hacks: CHECK
Not really a fan, but surrealism sounds pretty based to me.
Based surrealism enthusiast: check
what merit could the piece possibly be claiming, let alone undeserved or overestimated
unless you're just being a massive crab with the literary skill of a drooling retard and just spouting words that you've heard before
Basically everything I like about surrealism, especially when it comes to fundies.
They're the actual weirdos that the pretentious hipster fuckwit pretends to be. They just visualize insane shit and use their actual fundamental training in order to get other people to see that insane shit, too.
